LYRICS

Darling Corey (Darlin' Cora)

Wake up, wake up, darlin' Corey
What makes you sleep so sound?
For the revenue officers are comin'
Just to break your still-house down.

For the first time I saw darlin' Corey
She was sittin' in the sand,
She was hooked in kind of worries
Worries about her man.

Dig a hole dig a hole in the meadow
Dig a hole dig a hole in the ground,
Dig a hole dig a hole in the meadow
Just to lay darlin' Corey down.

For the next time I saw darlin' Corey
She was layin' in a door
She was hooked in kind of pretty
And I like the dress she wore.

For the last time I saw darlin' Corey
She was standin' in the square,
To fix gun strap 'round the meadow
And her low-down man was there.

Wake up, wake up, darlin' Corey.
What makes you sleep so sound?
For the revenue officers are comin'
Just to break your still-house down.
